Johnson's South America.
(South America, Empire of Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Guyana, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay).
Issued 1864, New York by Johnson & Ward.
Large civil war era mid 19th century lithographed map with original hand color.
A decorative scrolled border adds to the visual appeal of the map. These borders changed over time and help to identify different states and issues of Johnson maps, which makes them an interesting area to collect.
Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, light soiling and small scattered spotting or staining, short closed splits at centerfold ends within blank margin, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Original center fold as issued.
